Egyptian World No. 5 Nouran Gohar has signed an agreement with Dunlop International Co. Ltd to become a squash ambassador for the brand.
The rising star won her first tour title at the Prague Open in December 2013 at just 16-years-old. She continued her winning streak and broke into the world’s top 20 after a victory at the Monte Carlo Classic in 2014. A quarter-final finish at the Texas Open in 2015 pushed her into the top 15, and she moved into the world’s top 10 later that year after making it to the finals at the Macau Open.
Gohar’s win at the Hong Kong Open in 2016—her first World Series title—thrusted her into the top five, where she remains.
“We are excited to welcome Nouran as Dunlop’s newest squash ambassador. She is highly talented and we look forward to building a successful partnership with her for many years to come,” said Dunlop Marketing Director, Jamie Douglas.
Gohar said: “I am absolutely delighted and honoured to become part of the Dunlop team. It is a privilege to be part of a prestigious and valuable company like Dunlop that possesses such a big reputation and history within squash.”
She joins men’s players Gregory Gaultier [World No. 1], Nick Matthew [No. 4], Ali Farag [No.5] and Diego Elias [No. 19] to strengthen the international Dunlop Squash Tour team.
Gohar will play with Dunlop’s latest Hyperfibre Revelation 125 racket. She will also be a brand ambassador for Dunlop squash balls, apparel, luggage and grips.
